30 Hours Free Early Education and Childcare
What is 30 hours free early education and childcare? All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours of free early education. From September 2017 an additional 15 hours of free childcare available for families that meet the government’s eligibility criteria:-
- Both parents are working or the sole parent in a lone parent family is working
- Each parent earns, on average, a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours on National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage (at least £115), and less than £100,000 a year. (Note parents do not have to be working 16 hours)
A new web page containing information about 30 hours free childcare and links to other useful websites is now available here
Registration for Nursery places should be made directly with school – you can apply at any time and children can start when they are 3 in September, January and April (depending on their date of birth). Please contact the office for further information and an application form.
If you know any families who may not be aware of the fact that we have a nursery within the school please can you help spread the word? Children are currently entitled to 15 hours of free nursery education when they turn 3 years old, and this rose to 30 hours in September 2017 (subject to parental eligibility). We will continue to offer up to 30 hours of free nursery education from September 2018.
If you are not entitled to the 30 hours free childcare you can have up to 30 hours of quality care for as little as £63.75 per week using your 15 hours free entitlement – (additional hours cost £12.75 per 3 hour session).
